Buying Firing Systems & Fuse
Advice on where to buy firing systems and fuse.
Although some firework retailers do sell firing systems and additional fuse, in most cases these products are the preserve of companies specialising just in this area. In this article I’ll run through your options.
These allow you to set off your fireworks electrically and usually wirelessly too, as covered in more detail in the Lighting Fireworks Remotely guide.
The main systems on the market for consumers and those venturing further up the ladder, such as Cobra, FireTEK, RhinoFire and so on are available from the UKFR Sponsors listed in the banners above.
I also have a busy sub-section of my Fireworks Forum on exactly this subject: Firing Systems & Fusing Fireworks. In addition to useful posts from my Sponsors you will also find a great deal of discussion and recommendations for many other systems too, right down to the generic 4 channel systems on Ebay.
If you buy from a Sponsor, please mention UKFR. I don’t work on commission nor track who you buy from, so it’s a nice gesture to mention me which in turn encourages them to continue supporting the site. Some will also offer deals or freebies from time to time for those of you registered on my Forum.
Extending the existing fuse or linking fireworks together is possible with additional fuse as covered in my Fuse & Linking Fireworks article.
This is harder to find at general firework retailers because consumer fireworks by definition are intended for the general public and working with fuse is straying into more technical and semi-professional realms. So as a result, fuse is generally only available from specialist suppliers or sellers of firing systems, such as those listed in the banners above.
And as stated above I also have a busy sub-section of the Fireworks Forum covering this subject: Firing Systems & Fusing Fireworks. In addition to posts from my Sponsors you will also find a great deal of discussion about the use of fuse, where to buy it, what’s still legal for consumers to buy and some tutorials too.
